While all baptized Christians share in the one priesthood of Jesus Christ, the ordained priesthood confers a sacred power for the service of the faithful. Priests exercise this service through teaching, the celebration of the sacraments, and leadership of the people of God.
If you think God is calling you to be a priest, call the Diocesan Director of Vocations at 904-262-3200 ext. 101, or e-mail (see below). Permanent Deacons are ordained to assist bishops and priests in service to the people of God as ministers of Word, sacrament and charity.
For information about becoming a permanent Deacon, contact Fr. Denis.
